Tooth Extractions

HOME / Services / Impacted Teeth Extractions

Impacted teeth can cause various problems ranging from swollen gums to jaw pain. Often, tooth impaction can result in overcrowding, making it difficult to clean teeth properly and leading to gum disease.

To prevent the issues caused by impacted teeth, our oral surgeons can perform tooth extractions and tooth eruption procedures. With advanced IV and local anesthesia training, Dr. Vigliante, Dr. Gocke, and Dr. McAdams can locally numb the area for up to three days so you can recover faster and be more comfortable.

Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed, while others may have advanced periodontal disease or may be broken beyond repair. On the other hand, teeth may also need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth and are blocking your way to a beautiful smile during your orthodontic treatment.

For many teenagers and young adults, it is possible that their teeth never came out during adolescence because they were impacted or “stuck” under the gumline. At Virginia Advanced Surgical Arts, our oral surgeons can perform an easy surgical procedure to give that tooth the little nudge it needs to erupt and fill your smile’s potential.

Of course, many serious complications can result if these surgical procedures are not performed properly. It is advisable to seek a specialist who is trained to perform sensitive oral and facial surgeries, such as our oral & maxillofacial surgeons.

To schedule an impacted teeth and extractions consultation with one of our oral surgeons, contact Virginia Advanced Surgical Arts’ McLean office at (703) 388-2805, Reston office at (571) 595-3223, or Leesburg office at (703) 723-5366.

What Our Patients Say


“I felt welcomed and valued from the second I walked in the door to the moment I left. Every person I interacted with- from the front desk staff, to the surgical assistants, and even the doctor himself- was kind, informative, and helpful. I had my wisdom teeth removed on Friday and was back to work with only a mild and easily manageable headache on Monday. They gave clear instructions on how to prevent infection and dry socket, and even called to check up on me the day of and week after my procedure! I strongly recommend this office to anyone who is searching for the services they offer.

Jacquelyn Candito


“Everyone was super nice, friendly, and courteous. The office is clean and modern. Everyone was professional and seemed pretty organized. I got to watch Netflix laying down while I waited as well. The staff was nice enough to even switch it to a show I recommended!! Also, there are snacks and drinks available for your drivers waiting on you. As someone who is wary of going to the dentist, it was a great experience and I’d recommend this place! Cute valentines day decorations when I was there too!”
